During the Sweepstakes Period, and upon obtaining a Bag Code, visit FLVPGameGiveaway.com ("Web Site"). Follow the on-screen instructions to register and input your Bag Code and then properly submit an online play to determine if you have won an Instant-Win Prize (subject to verification) (a "Play").
In addition, Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to distribute Bag Codes at various times throughout the Promotion Period through additional means which may include, but not be limited to, getting a Bag Code from media units, by signing up for Snack Perks and/or through "Bonus Plays" for consumers who submit multiple Plays in accordance with these Official Rules. If any part of the Bag Code is counterfeited, or if the Bag Code comes from other games or promotions, or if any part is illegible, mutilated, or tampered with in any way, or if it contains or reflects printing, typographical, mechanical or other errors, the Bag Code, as applicable, will be rejected and will be deemed void and invalid.

If your computer screen displays a prize-winning message, you are a potential winner of an Instant-Win Prize (subject to verification).
